Geekbench is one of the go-to sites for scoops about the upcoming high-end Android devices. This time around, two different versions of Samsung?s Galaxy Note 7 have silently visited this popular benchmark site.
As it turns out, both Exynos 8893 and Snapdragon 820 variants of the Galaxy Note 7 scored high in the benchmark tests. However, one of them stood out.
The Exynos version, tied to model number ?SM-N935F,? apparently comes backed by a 4GB of RAM, while past rumors pointed to 6GB onboard.?Phone Arena, meanwhile, says Samsung might house a 6GB unit when the final product comes out. Prior to that, it?s very common for OEMs to test their handsets with different configurations.
Speaking of benchmark scores, the Exynos 8893-powered Galaxy Note 7 reportedly?amassed a single-core score of 2,300 points, while the multi-core score was a whopping 8,110 points. The handset that went through the benchmark test reportedly ran Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Moving on to the Snapdragon 820-powered Galaxy Note 7, the?Geekbench site has listed the code name of the device as ?SM-N930R6,? and it comes powered by a quad-core processor with 4GB of RAM backing it. Other key configurations of this variant include Adreno 530 GPU and Android 6.0.1.
The single-core and multi-core scores, as listed in the site, are 2,330 and 5,360 points, respectively. To put the results into perspective, the single-core scores of Exynos and Snapdragon variants are almost same. However, the Exynos model trumps the Snapdragon one by a huge margin in the multi-core test.
It is worth noting that, usually, Samsung?s Exynos variants power those devices earmarked for countries outside the U.S. and China, while Qualcomm?s Snapdragon variants power the U.S-bound variants. The rumored release date of Galaxy Note 7 is August 2.
